Affirming “I Am Health” has proven powerful for me recently—from being diagnosed with thyroid cancer in February, to the removal of my thyroid in April—I have been affirming “I Am Health” a lot and continue to do so during my recovery.
It’s because of this affirmation, the positive energy from friends and family, as well as seeing myself—and being grateful for—my whole health and well-being, that I had a successful surgery and continue to heal and grow stronger each day. Thank you to everyone who helped me through this.
I AM HEALTH Type Puzzle coloring page, by Darin Jones
Since I will be publishing two new Type Puzzles Affirmations coloring books (Vols. 1 & 2) in May, I decided to share some of the designs from the books. Here I colored just the figure—loosely based on the colors of the chakras—with the body being surrounded by healing light.
Also shown is the ‘key’—revealing how the letters, I AM HEALTH, make up the design.

Thinking today about Yoda training Luke Skywalker, I don’t remember if it was spoken or not, but I imagine that a great respect for the ‘Force’ must be given to wield such a power.
Respect is important in so many aspects of our lives—respect for oneself, respect for others, respect for nature, and so on...
To affirm “I Am Respect” is to be respect, and to be respect, you will then respect all things—even the great “Force.” May it be with you. And so it is...
My forthcoming Affirmations’ typography puzzles coloring book will feature “I Am Respect”. Pictured here is one of the sketches I made in developing the design. The design is made out of the letters: I Am Respect. Hint: The eye and nose lines are a ‘T’. Use the rough sketch key below for help.
As adults, when we come to a new, unknown path in life, we may feel any number of emotions—fear being one of them—not knowing what lies ahead and where it will take us…
However, our inner, adventure-seeking child is curious to see where the path will take us!
Paths are presented every day to us in the choices and decisions we make…and by affirming “I Am Curiosity,” we empower ourselves to embark on the unknown path ahead because our inner child is curious to see where it will go and enjoy the journey!
The design “I Am Curiosity” is in my forthcoming coloring book of “Affirmations” for the AffirMAYtion month of May. All affirmations are stated in the noun form to embody what that entity is and to empower oneself.
Today, I read a quote about ‘perfectionism’, and I got thinking how hard I am on myself—from looking at my ‘flaws’ and wishing they were gone or ‘better’—to ‘imperfections’ in my art and wishing they were more ‘precise’ or ‘better’.
When I look at nature—be it a tulip, a succulent, or stone, I don’t see imperfections, I only see beauty and perfection—each thing has its varying characteristics that make it unique and beautiful. If I can describe nature as perfection, then why not myself, or you? We all have our varying, beautiful, unique characteristics that make us who we are, so by saying, “I Am Perfection,” we embody IT—rather than describing ourselves as ‘perfect’ in the adjective form.
In my forthcoming coloring book of “Affirmations” designs, you’ll notice they are all stated in the noun form (VS the adjective), E.g. “I Am Beauty” (VS “I Am Beautiful”). So, however you see yourself, affirm “I Am Perfection”—whether you look at yourself in the mirror or with eyes closed—and really mean it. Say that a few times and see how you feel.
Saying positive affirmations have empowered me in countering negative self-talk and in the creating of what I want in my life.
ANNOUNCEMENT: In May, I will be publishing my new coloring books of Affirmations, Vols. 1 & 2, to provide people visual designs and their associative energy of affirmations, such as “I Am Commitment,” and “I Am Health.” —More on this to follow…
For now, bring to mind a negative self-talk you often find yourself saying, like “I give up,” then think of an affirmation in the positive, E.g. “I Am Perseverance.” Be with that—feel it, say it, and notice any shift in how you feel. ........
